Betty Ann Henderson went to her mansion in heaven Saturday Feb 29, 2020. Betty’s life verse was John 14:1-2, “Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you.” She enjoyed sharing the love of Jesus with others.
